Learn from automation system integrators about criteria used to choose types of switches, cabling, and topologies being applied for industrial Ethernet applications.
By CFE Media November 14, 2013

Industrial Ethernet implementations continue to gain traction on the plant floor and in process plants.What are the key industrial Ethernet technologies being installed today and why? Learn from automation system integrators about criteria used to choose types of switches, cabling, and topologies being applied for industrial Ethernet applications. Ethernet survey results will be discussed. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify the Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Industrial Premises to choose the proper cabling infrastructure for a particular network environment
  • Identify the Ethernet features required for particular network protocols and environment
  • Identify the best network topology for a particular plant layout.

Also covered will be Control Engineering research results on Ethernet spending trends, on Ethernet products and services, and productivity. After the presentation, a live question and answer session will be held.
